A Bit of Thailand: Chiang Mai’s Nimmanhemin

Jump into a tuk-tuk and all you have to do is say Nimman. The driver will transport you to one of the hippest streets in Chiang Mai. Officially Nimmanhemin, everyone just calls this trendy thoroughfare by its shortened form: Nimman.

Steps away from the bustling university, Nimmam can’t help but be the groovy, hipster center of the second city of Thailand. Chiang Mai may be mostly known for its temples and treks, but stay in town a few days and you can discover more than just Khao Soi and Monk Chat.
Here are my Best Bits of this happening part of town:

If you find it hard to break yourself away from the olde world, spend the morning wandering around the Lanna Traditional House Museum […]

A Bit of Qatar: Two Days in Doha

Finally I was heading to the other boot! Most of my life, both feet have been firmly planted in Italy, but, at the end of last year, I was given the opportunity to try on the other boot for the first time – the Arabian Peninsula.

Three nights in Doha was the top prize at a blogger event I attended and, lo and behold, I was the winner, all thanks to the generosity of Qatar Airways and the Qatar Tourism Board. Running through Abu Dhabi and Dubai airports heading to Bangkok or the Seychelles totalled my experience in this part of the world. This time, I would be stopping to smell the camels.
